Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) Query relationship values with Relevanssi Reply To: Query relationship values with Relevanssi

  • Hi Elliot,

    Thanks for your response! Basically the site deals with books. Previously authors were a separate post type and were attached to books via a relationship picker. Something went wrong with the permalinks which I’ve been unable to fix which means that I’ve now moved the author information onto the books pages. However, the information about the author(s) (e.g.: bio) is still saved as a separate post type.

    The issue is that you can’t search by author name and bring up the relevant books, I presume because, unlike other text fields for example, the relationship picker present different information.

    Do you know of a way to force Relevanssi (which I’m using in order to factor in various ACF custom fields) to search the post titles (in this case author names) selected in the relationship field rather than the numerical IDs assigned?

    Thanks very much!
